Has anyone who has bought a z60t (or X or T series, for that matter) experienced the dreaded lid closing resolution problem? Basically, when I close the lid and reopen, it changes the resolution and rearranges the icons. I've done my best to get around it, and largely have by setting the resolution for "both" monitors the same, but it's still a clunky workaround and not a real fix. I've tried pretty much everything. It's really annoying since I'm someone who likes closing the lid when not using the laptop, and needless to say, also pretty pissed that a brand new ThinkPad (supposedly the best) has such a stupid problem with no apparent solution. Any thoughts/ideas?

I haven't had that particular problem on the X series, but there are couple of things you might try (if you haven't tried updating the BIOS and updating drivers):
1. Set the power scheme so that it either enters sleep or hibernation when you close the lid.
2. You might see if disabling the graphics card's software prevents the problem (not the drivers, just the programs the graphics card runs in the background to do fancy but useless things). You could try terminating the processes in the taskmanager and then seeing if it still gives you the same problem.
3. I have nothing but a hunch...could it maybe be related to the Thinkpad's presentation manager software?
